Trade Schools in Bay Area

Trade schools in Bay Area communities have a proven track record of producing highly-skilled professionals who go on to lucrative, successful careers in various technical fields. While many local vocational schools are geared toward IT students who want to become part of the region’s thriving computer technology industry, there are also numerous institutions that focus on the arts, medical sciences and every other career path one may wish to pursue. In fact, the Bay Area’s network of nearly 100 different trade school programs matches Los Angeles for the title of California’s largest.

Job Outlook for Bay Area Trade School Graduates

According to both the state’s Employment Development Department and Moody’s five-year employment forecast, the nine Bay Area counties should expect to see steady job growth in several industries that are traditionally associated with being trade school careers. Those local industries projected to outpace the national average in job growth by 3% or better by www.BLS.gov include:

  • Construction
  • Education and Health Services
  • Financial Activities
  • Information
  • Leisure and Hospitality
  • Professional and Business Services
  • Transportation and Warehousing

Of the aforementioned fields, Construction and Information in particular are expected to boom in the Bay Area with job creation rates among the highest of any area in the country. Construction is projected to see a job increase of 22.9% in Santa Cruz County (highest in the Western U.S.) and Information-related jobs are expected to grow at one of the highest rates in the state over the next five years in the city of San Francisco and Silicon Valley.

Another career path promising a particularly bright future for Bay Area trade school graduates is Education and Health Services. Of the specific occupations expected to see the fastest rate of growth in the Bay Area through 2018, Home Health Aides and Physical Assistants are expected to be in extremely high demand with job growth percentages for each in excess of 40%.
